Pick-up trucks with US flags were filmed driving on the streets of Manbij on Friday, patrolling the city’s areas

The US troops are still patrolling the strategic city, near the Turkish border, while US defense officials confirmed on Friday that the US started the withdrawal from Syria, not disclosing further details on the location and timeline of the withdrawal.

For the time being, however, the US troops remain at their local base and continue their patrols.

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the Turkish-backed rebels are still positioned outside of Manbij, despite the withdrawal of the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG).

The Syrian Arab Army has mostly maintained a presence at the western part of Manbij, while the Turkish-backed rebels remain at the northern outskirts of the city.

The arrogance of these US scum is beyond belief. Not to mention the traitors that allowed them in.
